The Sweet Shop NYC

The Sweet Shop is located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Although small in size, the variety is vast. The Sweet Shop offers a wide selection of candies, artisanal chocolates, licorice, doughnuts, as well as frozen treats (such as ice cream sandwiches, gelato, sorbet and ice cream).

The Story of The Sweet Shop

We LOVE candy! At The Sweet Shop NYC we’ve taken our love of the “sweet life”, combined it with our passion for all things vintage, retro and nostalgic and created a place where you can almost step back in time. Whether you’re a kid or just a kid at heart, you’ll be taken to a place where we spark a childhood memory. Maybe you remember a candy necklace or an astro pop, scented gum or chuckles and chances are, we’ve got it! Oh and if we don’t, and it still exists, we’ll try and find it for you. 

The Sweet Shop NYC, is the design and creation of Kelly “The Candyman” Jaime and his wife Glyn, the husband and wife team who created the shop. Both are self-proclaimed candy buffs and have curated the amazing and never ending variety of sweets! Specializing in retro, nostalgic and hard to find candies, handmade chocolates, licorice, artisan ice cream, gelato and desserts.
